Amy Louise Jones
Instructor in German Studies

Amy (aka Dr. Jones) received her PhD from the Carolina-Duke German Program in May 2022. She's very excited to be staying with the department as a Lecturer this fall. As a grad student, her research focused on unusual muse figures in Romantic and post-Romantic poetry, especially those that represent an alternative to the male poet/female muse story so ingrained in our society. Poets she’s written on include Karoline von Günderode, Annette von Droste-Hülshoff, Heinrich Heine, and Anja Utler. Amy also completed the Sexuality, Gender and Feminism Certificate here at Duke. Post-graduation, she’s most committed to teaching and to re-investing in the practice of poetry.

Some of Amy’s other interests include listening to opera and operetta, reading fantasy and sci-fi, trying new kinds of coffee and learning other languages (currently Hungarian). She can’t wait to get to know more Duke students and to help them in their quest of learning German!
